My AVS showed bilateral disease. What do I do now?

If you have a bilateral form of primary aldosteronism, you should be treated with medication. The most effective drugs are mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists (MRAs) that work to inhibit the effect of excess aldosterone in the body. MRAs include Spironolactone and Eplerenone. Other medications are available for those who experience serious side effects when using those drugs. See the section on this website titled “Medical Option” for more information.
